Wheaten Bread Recipe (Brown Soda Bread)

Prep Time

Total Time

1 Hour 10 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 350° degrees.


2. Butter a loaf pan and set aside.


3. Using a food processor, pulse the oats a few times to break them down into smaller pieces. You want some flour, some bigger pieces, and some smaller pieces.


4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, pulsed oats, baking soda, and salt.


5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, brown sugar, and melted butter.


6. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine. It should be thicker than muffin batter but not as thick as a traditional bread dough.


7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth it out evenly.


8. Sprinkle the remaining oats.


9. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


10. Allow to cool in the pan and on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes. When the pan is cool enough to handle, turn the bread out onto the wire rack to finish cooling. Or serve warm with butter!
